A Great Day of Learning

Finishing up a great day. put on an incredible conference — dozens of leaders taught for nine minutes apiece. Back-to-back videos all day long. (Not saying you have to like it, but I loved it.)

Over the next few days (as soon as the videos are linked from the site), I’ll point you to some of my favorites. In the meantime, let me give you the notes I took from Reggie McNeal’s talk on a Missional Renaissance in the church.

Reggie defines the Missional church as “The people of God partnering with God in His redemptive Mission in the world.” And he clarifies it phrase by phrase:

People of God
The church is a who, not a what.

Partnering with Him
The church doesn’t have a mission, the mission has a church.
Ask people regularly, “How can I ask God to bless you?”

In His redemptive mission
Everything sin broke, God is reconciling.

In the world
We are not the point.
Where you are is your place to bless.

Stay tuned over the next few days for links to some of these great (and short) teachings.
